One New York Sheriff feels NY Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo has over stepped his authority by setting restrictions on family gatherings and has vowed not to enforce them in his county.
Cuomo has set an executive order which limits indoor gatherings to 10 or less, an order Fulton county sheriff Richard Giardino says he will not follow calling it an example of government overreach.
The sheriff had this to say about the order, “Who and how many people you invite in to your home is your business, unlike outdoor gatherings which may receive a police response if disorderly or other violations of public nuisance laws occur. “We have limited resources and we have to set priorities, so obtaining a Search Warrant to enter your home to see how many Turkey or Tofu eaters are present is not a priority. We won’t be doing that.”
Indoor gatherings, big or small, are a risk.
Here's how to reduce the risk:
-Wear masks and keep distance
-Shorten the duration of the visit

Democratic Washington state Governor Jay Inslee similarly announced restrictions on indoor gatherings, including weddings and funerals, and a ban on visits to care facilities. His restrictions additionally limit outdoor gatherings to no more than 5 people outside the immediate household. For indoor events, gatherings with those outside the household are forbidden unless visitors quarantine for two-weeks or 7-days of isolation along with a negative COVID-19 test.
Violator’s may be subject to criminal penalties, according to Inslee’s “Stay Safe-Stay Healthy” Proclamation.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced last week that a stay-at-home order will also go into effect for Chicago, limiting movement outside to ‘essential reasons,’ and telling residents not to allow any guests into their homes.
Less than one week ago New York Mayor Bill de Blasio urged residents to avoid large gatherings for meals, in spite of the upcoming holidays. However, de Blasio stated that it’s not time to implement broader restrictions across the city than the current 25% capacity limitation instituted in restaurants.
These Democratic Governors and Mayors along with mainstream media are constantly calling Trump a fascist and a dictator, yet they are the ones that want to regulate how many people you have in your home, curfews so you can’t be out past 10 and want you to wear a mask in your own house. Democrats should really look in the mirror and ask who the dictator is?
